The Global Soldier Modernization Market 2012–2022

Lon­don, June, 2012 – The sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion mar­ket con­sists of five sys­tem cat­e­gories: C4ISR based sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion sys­tems, Mobil­i­ty based sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion sys­tems, Lethal­i­ty based sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion sys­tems, Sur­viv­abil­i­ty based sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion sys­tems and Sus­tain­abil­i­ty based sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion sys­tems. The val­ue of the mar­ket is expect­ed to increase at a CAGR of 3.07% dur­ing the fore­cast peri­od (ref­er­ence see graph below).

Demand for tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion equip­ment is antic­i­pat­ed to rise in the fore­cast peri­od

The glob­al defense indus­try is invest­ing sig­nif­i­cant­ly in R&D in an effort to increase the capa­bil­i­ties of mod­ern sol­diers. This has led to the devel­op­ment of new and ground break­ing sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion tech­nolo­gies which have enhanced the sur­viv­abil­i­ty, lethal­i­ty, mobil­i­ty and equip­ment sus­tain­abil­i­ty capa­bil­i­ties of the indi­vid­ual sol­dier. Cur­rent inno­va­tions are ori­ent­ed towards inte­grat­ing infor­ma­tion flow from var­i­ous com­mand sta­tions into a sin­gle mod­ule while incor­po­rat­ing the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed by indi­vid­ual sol­diers on the field so as to aid the deci­sion mak­ing capa­bil­i­ties of infantry bat­tal­ions. The high­est defense spend­ing coun­tries are now focus­ing on build­ing small­er infantries with enhanced sur­viv­abil­i­ty and lethal­i­ty in order to derive max­i­mum effec­tive­ness from troop deploy­ment. This has led coun­tries like the US, the UK and France to invest in equip­ment such as Buf­fa­lo Mine Pro­tect­ed Clear­ance Vehi­cles, Vehi­cle Optics Sen­sor Sys­tems (VOSS) and Joint Impro­vised Explo­sive Device Defeat Devices. 

Defense bud­get cuts and the glob­al eco­nom­ic cri­sis not expect­ed to affect growth of the glob­al sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion mar­ket

The glob­al eco­nom­ic slow­down has reduced the defense bud­gets of most lead­ing spenders in the world, includ­ing the US, France, Ger­many and the UK. These coun­tries have cut back spend­ing in var­i­ous defense sec­tors such as space, air­craft and vehi­cles. Con­verse­ly, they have divert­ed funds towards sec­tors where rapid tech­nol­o­gy devel­op­ment and deploy­ment is pos­si­ble such as sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion, C4ISR and cyber war­fare. High growth mar­kets such as the BRIC nations have been for­mu­lat­ing con­tin­u­ous pro­grams to pro­cure the lat­est sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion sys­tems and have been invest­ing exten­sive­ly on R&D for the past 5 years. With con­tin­u­ous evo­lu­tion and tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments tak­ing place in the sol­dier mod­ern­iza­tion domain, this trend is expect­ed to con­tin­ue through­out the fore­cast period. 

About Strate­gic Defence Intel­li­gence
This report is one of a series avail­able to sub­scribers of our pre­mi­um research plat­form, Strate­gic Defence Intel­li­gence. Strate­gic Defence Intel­li­gence pro­vides a stream of con­tin­u­ous­ly updat­ed cus­tomer and com­peti­tor intel­li­gence, as well as detailed research reports pro­vid­ing an unri­valled source of glob­al infor­ma­tion on the lat­est devel­op­ments in the defence indus­try. Strate­gic Defence Intelligence’s unique mon­i­tor­ing plat­form tracks glob­al defence activ­i­ty for over 2,500 com­pa­nies and 65 prod­uct cat­e­gories in real time and in a high­ly struc­tured man­ner, giv­ing a com­pre­hen­sive and eas­i­ly-search­able pic­ture of all defence indus­try activ­i­ty. The site fea­tures: dai­ly updat­ed analy­sis, com­ment and news, com­pa­ny and cus­tomer pro­files, defence spend­ing, ten­ders and con­tracts, prod­uct and tech­nol­o­gy intel­li­gence, a research and analy­sis data­base pro­vid­ing access to indus­try and com­peti­tor reports to enable busi­ness and mar­ket plan­ning, and ful­ly cus­tomiz­able tools, includ­ing instant per­son­al­ized report gen­er­a­tion and cus­tom alerts. 

For more than a decade pro­vides infor­ma­tion from the field of for­eign and secu­ri­ty pol­i­cy. It all start­ed in the year 2001. After 911 the founder and cur­rent edi­tor in chief Hol­ger Paletschek start­ed to cre­ate a Ger­man-speak­ing web­site with an overview about the armed forces of the world. Today stands for cur­rent news, back­ground arti­cles, geopo­lit­i­cal analy­ses, net­work of experts, indus­try lead­ers, polit­i­cal deci­sion mak­ers, as well as infor­ma­tion about the armed forces of the world pro­vid­ed in Ger­man and English.
